I still learn english sorry for my simple language.
Hello guys. Im from Hungary. Its good to see news from here reach the world and forums like this. But i have to disappoint you.
We are part of the EU and there are consequent steps to destroy our agriculture. So yes. Right now we banned GMO products, but the truth is we wont
produce much organic foods either.
We have a very good geological location, sorrounded by high mountains like the Alps and Carpathians which protect us from extreme weather. We have 4
very separete seasons and we are rich in good quality waters, not only on the surface but this region is incredibly rich in geothermal waters too.
But i could tell for hours what happened here since we allowed international money to enter our country (1991). We were the "food table of europe" (
Hungarian historical term i cant translate exactly ) for centuries but now we have to import everything. For example we ate cherry and grape from
Chile ( exactly the opposite side of the globe ) while our farmers are paid to destroy and sell their fields.
We had a great sugar producing industry with 12 factories 20 years ago. Since we are in the EU we have only 1. Big european sugar industry groups
bought everything to "increase their productivity and bring new technology here", but they lied and they let the factories to go bankrupt.
We produced 650.000 Tonns of sugar in 1991. Last year it was 105.000 Tonns. We arent allowed to produce more because the EU has regulations and
standards. Its very stupid that half of the globe is starving and we have to pay fines to the EU if we produce more food.
And those regulations..
They had a EU standard about the curve of the cucumber. It took them 20 years to realize this BS.
And another one big problem:

Monsanto got a big boost in Europe yesterday when an official ruled that the European Union’s constituent countries couldn’t independently ban
genetically modified crops (GMOs) on their turf. Source: Red Green & Blue (s.tt...)
Maybe we won a battle but we lost the war years ago. And i havent said anything about our corrupt politicians yet.
